A medical charity says three quarters of adults infected with HIV in West and Central Africa do not have access to treatment.

Medecins Sans Frontieres said 90% of infected children in the region face the same problem. It blamed the situation on conflict, weak health systems and a lack of political will.

The number of people with HIV in West and Central Africa is relatively low compared with some southern African countries, where about 20% of the population is infected.

But in those countries, about half of those infected have access to treatment.
